Organic FCPress Extra Virgin Olive Oil 500ml

Back to Recipes

1 (12-inch) cedar plank

2 tablespoons sesame oil

3 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon dill weed

1 tablespoon sesame seeds

3 tablespoons water

1 large or 4 (6 ounce) salmon fillets (with skin)

1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 lemon (cut into wedges)


Soak the cedar plank in water for a minimum of 3 hours (or up to 12)

In a small bowl (I doubled the recipe for the sauce) stir together the sesame oil, brown sugar, dill weed, soy sauce, pepper, and the sesame seeds.Stir in just enough water to make it liquid.

Place the salmon fillet in an air-tight container and spoon the sauce over the salmon.Seal the container and place it in the refrigerator.I did mine overnight but that isn't necessary. Allow the salmon to marinate in the sauce for at least two hours.

When ready, place the salmon on the plank, skin-side down, put it on the grill and close the lid.Total grilling time is approximately 30-40 minutes at medium heat.Salmon is finished when it can be flaked with a fork. Serve with lemon wedges.
